Homecoming - Jonathan Berkhan,Rowena Simpson, Robert Ibell

Whats On

Nostalgic for the good old days? Aroha Music Society presents the Hammers & Horsehair duo Jonathan Berkhan (piano) and Robert Ibell (cello) joining forces with Rowena Simpson (soprano) to reimagine the triumphant 1922 New Zealand tour of Blenheim-born soprano Rosina Buckman with cellist Adelina Leon and pianist-composer Percy Kahn, pictured above. The musical items in this delightful and varied concert include period classics and will be interspersed with anecdotes from the 1922 tour.

The “Homecoming” tour by Rosina Buckman in 1922-23 followed her farewell concert at Royal Albert Hall in London with an audience of over 10,000. One hundred years later Aroha Music Society is proud to host this tribute performance.
Those of you who know Hammers and Horsehair will note that pianist is Johnathan Berkhan not Douglas Mews who has retired from touring. www.hammersandhorsehair.co.nz
